BIS Certification

TNC takes great pleasure in offering prompt, capable, and superior BIS certification services. We value our customers; therefore we go the extra miles to earn your complete pleasure both now and as long as you remain one of them. Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a national standards body in India that provides certification to various products and services, including those in the telecom industry. BIS certification for telecom products ensures that the products meet the necessary safety, health, and environmental requirements specified by the Indian government.

In the telecom industry, BIS certification is mandatory for certain products, such as:

  • Mobile phones
  • Cordless phones
  • Fax machines
  • Wireless headphones
  • Set-top boxes
  • Optical transport equipment
  • Customer-premises equipment (CPE) for broadband services


BIS certification for telecom products involves testing the products in authorized laboratories to ensure that they meet the required technical specifications and safety standards. The certification process involves both factory and market surveillance audits to ensure the ongoing compliance of the products. It’s important for manufacturers and importers who want to sell their products in India. It is a mandatory requirement for these products to enter the Indian market, and failure to comply with BIS certification requirements can result in penalties, fines, and legal action. BIS certification is an important requirement for telecom products in India, and it ensures that the products meet the necessary safety and technical standards set by the government.

Benefits of BIS Certification in the Telecom Industry

BIS certification is an important requirement for telecom products in India, and obtaining BIS certification provides several benefits for both manufacturers and consumers in the telecom industry. Some of the benefits of BIS certification in the telecom industry are:

  1. Quality Assurance

  1. Increased Marketability

  1. Consumer Confidence

BIS certification assures consumers that the telecom products they purchase are safe, reliable, and meet the necessary quality standards. This helps build trust and confidence in the brand and can lead to increased customer loyalty.

  1. Compliance with International Standards

BIS certification for telecom products is based on international standards and best practices, which can help manufacturers and importers comply with similar standards in other countries and markets.

Overall, BIS certification is an essential requirement for telecom products in India, and obtaining BIS certification provides several benefits for manufacturers, importers, and consumers in the telecom industry.

Keeping in view, the interest of consumers as well as the industry, BIS is involved in various activities as given below:


The list is constantly being extended and already covers a wide range of various product groups such as construction products and materials, household products, consumer and office electronics, dairy products and raw materials. It is to be expected that BIS will continue to take over more and more product certification areas from other authorities.

Products Certification according to the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has been in place since July 2013 and is intended to guarantee quality, safety and reliability to third parties.

There are three types of Certifications within the Compulsory Registration Scheme (CRS):

1. The mandatory BIS certification including factory inspection.
2.The mandatory BIS certification without factory inspection.
3. The voluntary BIS certification.

Each type of certification also has its own mark, which is also mandatory.

Since new products are constantly being added to the BIS catalogue, it makes sense to clarify certification requirements of the individual products with the authorities. In some cases, it even makes a difference where you register your product because for the moment, standards are changing so quickly, that the individual officials themselves are not always up to date.

You should therefore expect a somewhat longer clarification phase in advance. Please also note that for many products the respective manufacturer must have their own internal product testing facilities in order to achieve BIS certification.

The BIS certification process always includes

1. Application
2. Product tests in India
3. Certification
4. Marking

Depending on the type of certification and which products are affected, a factory inspection and follow-up tests may also be required. If a factory inspection is required, the auditors will select test samples during the audit, thus extending the certification process by several months. You can also find the products for which an audit is mandatory on our BIS certification process page.

The certification is valid for two years, but the frequency of following tests also depends on the type of product. Classification of a product can be complicated and should best be checked on an individual basis.
